An award-winning potter from a family of accomplished, well-known potters, her storyteller figures are widely and gleefully collected.
Totally hand made and traditional, from clay to paint, her good-natured figures are charmingly detailed and animated, with amiable faces.
This happy chanter is delighting the boys clinging to him, judging by their cheerful smiles.
“Grandpa” holds a traditional water canteen, decorated with a three-dimensional lizard and painted water signs.
A lady bug sits on the arm of one of the boys, while a very decorative, alert-looking turtle listens, on one of the storyteller’s moccasins.
The real charmer of this piece is an adorable puppy, clambering up the other leg.
With a really puppy-ish, large head, eyes, ears and front paws, he is as round and roly-poly as clay can be.
His color and markings are that of a beagle, but every dog-lover will see his or her own darling in him.
An utterly beguiling figural piece by this famous potter.
